Kate Winslet is in Glamour Magazine this month, where she rocks a tightÂ black dress on the cover and discusses body weight and image and plastic surgeryÂ in the interview:
GLAMOUR: During your last interview for Glamour six years ago, you were asked what you were going to be like in five years. And you jokingly replied that you’d be doing liposuction and Botox. Have you changed your mind about not trying those cosmetic things?
KATE WINSLET: My face is still moving, right? No, I have never tried any of that stuffâ€¦. I don’t have parts of my body that I hate or would like to trade for somebody else’s or wish I could surgically adjust into some fantasy version of what they are.
GLAMOUR: I read that you were literally called â€œblubberâ€ when you were a teenager because you were overweight.
KATE WINSLET: Yeah. Not when I was a teenager, actually-between the ages of 8 and 11. Looking back on it, I really wasn’t that heavy. I was just stockier than the other sporty, whippy-looking kids.
GLAMOUR: You stood 5’6â€ and weighed 200 pounds (90 kg at 168 cm)?
KATE WINSLET: When I was 15, yes.
GLAMOUR: Were you tormented? Because today you embrace your body in a way that women love-but did you feel that way back then?
KATE WINSLET: Well, that’s an enormous compliment. You know, I will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to me-and it was such a backhanded comment-they would say, â€œYou’ve got such a beautiful face,â€ in the way of, like, â€œOh, isn’t it a shame that from the neck down you’re questionable.â€
